10-3 In The ACC—Terps Storm From Behind to Defeat Clemson 88-79 on Redemption Day====Audio from Gary, Sean Mosley and Jordan Williams

Maryland Terrapins defeat Clemson Tigers

Boxing experts say that that true champions are able to get off the canvas, recover and then knock out their opponent. Early in this game, Clemson delivered an early knockdown blow–going up by 15 and seemingly in total control of the game.  But there is tremendous heart in this Terrapin team. They clawed, scratched and fought back eventually taking the lead when their Captain Vasquez nailed a 3 to put the Terps up 66-63. Before you blinked, a Hayes 3, a Greivis steal and stuff and the Terps were up by 10.

It is patently absurd that the Terrapins are not ranked. Find me an ACC team that was 9-3 in the conference and not in the top 25.  Gary has gone 9 deep with this team and it is paying off royally–Tonight Cliff Tucker’s 3 buckets keyed the final push of the comeback. Gary Audio Gary post Clemson

Jordan Williams is rapidly filling that low post void–more then holding his own against NBA future 1srt rounder, Trevor Booker. Jordan finished with 18 points on 8-12 shooting. More important he is moving great without the ball and winding up with layup after layup. I asked Jordan about this after the game. Jordan audio.Jordan Clemson

Sean Mosley still is too unselfish but his early scoring kept the Terrps in the game. Sean was fantastic tonight scoring 20 points on only 8 shots. He hit a crucial 3 during the comeback. Audio Mosley Clemson

Greivis was under the weather with stomach cramps before the game.  Clemson double and even triple teamed him early. The shots were not there but Greivis found his way to 13 assists, while still scoring 13 and hitting 2 daggers to take the lead and secure the victory. Clemson again pressed the entire game and like Georgia Tech it was mainly to disrupt the rhythm of the Terps. But when these guys get rolling there is no stopping them. Gary addressed this in the post game.

When Eric hayes is on, Maryland wins. 6-9 from the field and 3-3 from the 3 point line. 15 points and 0 turnovers. The hokies got crushed on the road by BC and now trail the Terps by 2 games. The terps travel to Blacksburg Saturday at 4PM to face Malcolm Dulaney and Company.

    real nice win especially after the horrible first half. thank goodness for mosley’s early shooting. otherwise we’d be down by 25. hayes, mosley. williams played really well. nice job by vasquez keeping everyone involved when he had trouble shooting. tucker provided energy off the bench. williams is showing more low post moves every game and is progressing beautifully. team didn’t shoot free throws that well last night and still need to work on boxing out but they showed a lot of heart and fought back to win.

    Very nice second half run – that seems to be their M.O. I’m a little concerned at the inability to finish defensive possessions with a rebound though. Clemson got way too many second chance opportunities. Very good win as I am a South Carolina resident and really dislike Clemson.
